Editorial Reviews


"One is impressed by the book's internal coherence. It should trigger a fresh Congressional inquiry into this national tragedy." -- Fredrick J. Norris, LtCdr., US Naval Attaché, ret.

"The book is so astounding… how did the CIA persuade... government officials to... overthrow the... government? It is all here!" -- Military Magazine, Summer 2002

"The materials revealed in Mr. Douglas' book deserve front page news. A monumental achievement." --Back Channels magazine, Summer 2002

From the Publisher

Press Release: CIA OFFICIAL ADMITS: WE KILLED JFK! President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963, by Lee Harvey Oswald. Oswald, it was determined by the official Warren Commission, acted entirely alone.


Actually, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated by four Corsican Mafiosi. These Mafiosi, according to fifty pages of formerly secret Defense Intelligence Agency and CIA documents, killed the President as the direct result of a well-laid plot on the part of the senior officials of the CIA, the FBI, the NSA and the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Kennedy was suspected by the Director of the CIA, James McCone, and James Jesus Angleton, head of the CIA's counterintelligence branch, along with Robert Trumbull Crowley, Assistant Deputy Director of the Agency's Clandestine Operations, of passing secret CIA briefing papers to the Soviet Union via his brother, Robert, the Attorney General. These officials felt that this was sufficient reason to "remove" the President from his high office by assassination.

The so-called "Driscoll Report" was compiled by Colonel Vedder B. Driscoll, head of the Soviet Intelligence Section of the DIA. Driscoll wrote a 19 page top secret report in 1978 addressing a secret Soviet evaluation of the assassination as seen through their eyes.

Also supporting the Driscoll Report is a long, top secret CIA report on "Operation ZIPPER," the official record of meetings, telephone calls and NSA telephone intercepts that led directly to the assassination of John Kennedy.

These documents, along with detailed commentary, can be found in a new book: "Regicide: The Official Assassination of John F. Kennedy" (for details see below).

The explosive documents that supply the background for this landmark work come straight from the private files of Robert Crowley. Crowley, an instigator and active participant in the assassination, died in October of 2000 in a Washington hospital and a significant number of copies of his high-level document collection came into the possession of two writers.

One of these writers, Gregory Douglas, who has written four books concerning the use of top Nazi intelligence personnel by the CIA, has prepared a work that shows in clear, heavily footnoted detail, backed up with official documents, the development and execution of "Operation ZIPPER." His book also lists the names and positions of those U.S. officials who were privy to the plot.

"Regicide" is the very first study to use official documents, copies of which were long ago shredded by frightened American intelligence community officials. This work also includes a massive list of over 3,000 CIA "sources" in the United States and Europe, individuals in the American and foreign media, business and military worlds whom Crowley cataloged as "important and significant" members of the clandestine intelligence community.

Well, I've been looking into the assassination for 39 years now, and it seems that finally the truth has come out and names are named...It is funny that after all this years we finally come full circle to the first hypothesis, that of the Great Conspiracy hatched by the US government itself.. That hypothesis was rejected as being too outlandish, to be replaced by more acceptable thesis: CIA, Mafia, FBI, oil barons, or whatever.
Now Mr DOUGLAS apparently delivers the good, whith a short (and often repetitive, in my view) book based on secret documents entrusted to him by a former high ranking CIA official. If those papers are true (and there lies my only reservation: how can we be sure?)we indeed have the answers to all the questions, notably the classic "such a conspiracy would require the participation of too many people inside and outside the governement". Well, if the Government itself did it...Personnally, I am inclined to think the docs are genuine, since they verify informations available from other sources, for instance the HARVEY Papers (which can be found in "Bloody Treason")describing the logistics of what could well be the bueprint to the JFK hit. I hope researchers in the US check this rapidly and let us know of the validity of the documents
A must for every concerned citizen...

If the documents released in this book are not fakes, then it is most alarming that it didn't get more public attention, because it is an official nuclear bomb.
In fact, it proves that JFK was killed by the CIA with knowledge of other high placed persons and authorities.
Why this assassination? It was a killing for survival. JFK planned to break-up the Agency and 'scatter it to the winds'.
The whole book is a frontal attack on the CIA, written with anger and profound disgust. Disgust with the enormous waste of money on an incompetent Agency (it couldn't prevent the September 11 attack), on its deep implication in drug trafficking, its disastrous analyses, its unending catalogue of instigations of rebellion and civil wars, of terrorism and assassinations. And the final result: the world turned against the US.
This book contains other very revealing facts.
The CIA helped the OAS in France in an attempt to kill President De Gaulle.
The JFK gunmen were French citizens. One of them Lucien Sarti, who escaped to Mexico and was murdered there?
We know already from other sources that JFK was not a saint, but that 'In Chicago even the death were said to have voted, again, early and often' (p.58) was news for me.
This book confirms the thesis of Peter Dale Scott's 'Deep Politics', which suggested that the thugs-of-war behind the crime were to be found in the US power system, a symbiosis of public government, organized crime and private wealth.
This book is a very disturbing analysis of one of the boldest, darkest and most important assassinations of all time. It shows that the world is only governed by the elected politicians if they carry out the policies of the real powerful.
A must read.

Getting hooked on the JFK assassination story as a kid watching Geraldo in 1975, I have read over thirty books on the subject. Some that made sense, some that were fiction (posner). What this book does is put alot of the various information into context. So much of what has been written over the years gets pushed aside by the mainstream media because the fingers were being pointed in so many differant directions. The mafia did it, or the cubans, or the texans. This could go on and on. This story shows that some or all of the groups often blamed for the murder, either were involved or at least knew that it was going to take place.If the documents in this story stand up then this is the smoking gun that everybody has been looking for. This is the first book that starts from the top down.It looks at who got the ball rolling . What is a surprise is that the source of the documents, Robert Crowley till the day he died, thought that the murder was justified. This is required reading for anybody that has been following the case as it shows that sooner than later the truth will come out. I just hope that the mainstream media tells the story so that people will finally realize the truth.

I just finished reading the Regicide book and have read the reviews of it. I would like to add a few comments of my own.
I am not really a Kennedy assassination fan. I don't know a great deal about this as it happened before I was born. I, and many of my friends, do believe that the official story is not only not true but is so silly as to be an affront to people...This book came into my hands by accident and I read it at one sitting. I was absolutely shocked by what I found in it and I initially simply did not believe it. But, in talking to a friend of my late father's who was in the CIA, I discovered that it was true. I could accept perhaps another shooter in Dallas or credit the messed up history from the government as the usual bureaucratic stupidity but this book goes well beyond that relatively generous condemnation.
I will say that as shocked as I am, I do believe it and the use of dozens of pages of official Governmental reports is enough to shut up even the most noisy pro-Government critic.
I currently live in France and I have shown the book to a number of people, one at the Ministerial level in the government, and all of them, without exception, have said that it is about time that the American public learn what all of them allready know and have known for decades. Namely that Kennedy was killed by his own people and not by a "lone nut."
It must have been a miracle that these documents survived for all these years in the private files of a top CIA man. Maybe, if we wait long enough, we can find out what really happened in other areas that the Government has so closely hidden.
I could not put this book down and have loaned my copy to a friend who also is shocked by it. But, like myself, he too believes it completely.
